It's a semicolon:
END;

Do not mistake SQL for PL/SQL; and language and the tool you use for it.
A PL/SQL statement ends with a semi-colon.
A SQL statement has not ending character.
The tool you use to send a SQL statement may have a character to end a statement which means to send the statement to Oracle.

For instance SQL*Plus, for SQL, default termination character is ';' but you can change it:
SQL> select * from dual;
D
-
X

1 row selected.

SQL> set sqlterminator '$'
SQL> select * from dual$
D
-
X

1 row selected.

SQL> select * from dual;
  2  $
select * from dual;
                  *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00911: invalid character


SQL> set sqlterminator off
SQL> select * from dual
  2  /
D
-
X

1 row selected.

SQL> select * from dual;
  2  /
select * from dual;
                  *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00911: invalid character
For PL/SQL, as PL/SQL statement ends with a ';', you must always tells SQL*Plus the PL/SQL block is ended using '/':
SQL> begin null; end;
  2
  3
  4
  5
  6
  7
  8
  9
 10  /

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

When I create a stored procedure from C# via .NET connector, which is it - PL/SQL or SQL?

CREATE PROCEDURE is a SQL statement.
The body of the procedure is PL/SQL; so its ends with a ";".

See SQL Language Reference, CREATE PROCEDURE:

Quote:
CREATE [ OR REPLACE ] [ EDITIONABLE | NONEDITIONABLE ] PROCEDURE plsql_procedure_source
(plsql_procedure_source: See Oracle Database PL/SQL Language Reference.)
